I have thought about doing this post for a while now, but I’ve always put it off. It’s no secret that I have a slight makeup obsession. Which was a lot worse back in the day, as I would find a reason to buy practically everything. This has led to a few products I regret buying and I thought I would share them with you. This doesn’t mean that they’re bad products, they just didn’t work for me.
This is Products I Regret Buying.
Urban Decay | Naked Heat Palette
I love Urban Decay Naked palettes and it still breaks my heart that they discontinued the original. Back when this palette was released I was in a different headspace and wanted to own all of the Naked palettes, so I bought this one. I also wanted to do a review, which again; wrong headspace. I experimented with this palette and enjoyed it for a month, but I don’t gravitate towards it at all.
Multiple MAC Lipsticks
MAC lipsticks used to have my heart, so I did the rational thing and bought loads. You know as you do… This isn’t me saying I regret buying all of my MAC lipsticks, but I definitely bought too many and ended up with way more than I could use and had to throw some out as they had started to go bad. This was my wakeup call that makeup does not last forever, so use what you have.
ColourPop | No Filter Foundation Stick
Why did I think it was a good idea to buy the shade 07 N? This looks way too dark for me. I’m disappointed as I have heard amazing things, but this shade is going to do nothing for me at all. I want to test it out when I have tan on, as it might match me better then. As for now this is going unused.
Anastasia Beverly Hills | Liquid Lipstick
I have always hated drying lipsticks, but back when liquid lipsticks were the thing to own I tried my best to get in on it. Which led to me trying multiple formula’s to find one that I liked. Let’s just say this was not one of them. With most liquid lipsticks I can keep them on for a few hours, but this one did not flatter me at all and I have to take it off faster than I applied it.
Becca | Eye Lights Palette
I’m the kind of person who thought a palette called Eye Lights was a face highlighter palette. I know, I don’t know what I was thinking either. Basically I thought this eyeshadow palette was for your face and when I realised it wasn’t I put it to the back of the draw and haven’t looked at it since. The shades are nice and all, but I don’t feel drawn to the palette and when it comes to doing my eyeshadow I always forget that I own it.
ColourPop | Hades Super Shock Highlighter
This is another product I regret buying because of the shade not suiting me. This highlighter is a part of ColourPop’s super shock range which means it has a cream to powder finish and I don’t think it’s lasted well in the compact compared to the usual pots. This shade is a lot darker than I was expecting it to be, as it has a deep yellow/ peach base with a pink shimmer. It’s fair to say that I did not need this highlighter in my collection.
Anastasia Beverly Hills | Glow Kit Ultimate Glow
Speaking of products not suiting me… Who knows what was going through my head when I bought this. Snow is the only shade that I know will be the right shade for me, but I’m not keen on white highlighters so that’s that one out. I used to like the shade White Sand judging by the pan, but even that looks dark for my pale self.
There we have it, those are some products I regret buying. Most of them fall into the category of me not thinking things through rather than the product it’s self, so that says a lot.
